Market Abuse Regulation

The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) came into effect on 3 July 2016. It replaced the previous Market Abuse Directive, and established a strengthened and expanded civil market abuse regime across the EU.

MAR extended the market abuse regime so that it applies to more venues, more instruments, and more behaviours. While the core offences of insider dealing, unlawful disclosure of inside information, and market manipulation remain, their scope has been expanded.
